It was a long game for the Leopards on Thursday. Temple College overcame a 5-1 deficit and rallied to tie the game up in the eighth inning. After four innings without a score, Collin Janssen led off the bottom of the 13th inning by launching a home run over the left field fence to end the four and a half hour game to take them to the Junior College World Series. It was the longest game i've ever been to and it definitely ended with a bang. Next up is Belton on Saturday as they look to knock Lake Highland out of the Playoffs in Game 2 of the series.
